In 2008, PLG was new to the module producing business, but knew that the industry was going to expand over the next few years. Through many negotiations, it became clear that a high performance semi-automated crystalline cell module manufacturing line capable of producing up to 25 megawatts of solar modules per year was the best choice. Spire’s objective is to supply the process technology and training to operate the factory, as well as assistance in qualifying the factory and its modules to international standards and certification.

The contract between Spire and PLG was made in June 2008. Within 1 month of the contract, PLG achieved IEC certification and ramped to production with 25MW manufacturing line. In December 2009, they ramped up to 50MW Crystalline Solar PV manufacturing capability. They expect to expand to 100MW of c-Si modules by 2010.
